Things are looking good for Boehner and Co.

According to a recent Gallup poll,  Republicans are ahead by 51-41 margin-the largest margin GOP has ever had in 68 years of generic polling. Compare that to September of 2006 when Gallup polled the Dems at a 52-41 margin, John Boehner and the House GOP have a lot to smile about.

These generic polls are a good way to gage the overall mood of the electorate, and right now folks are not happy with the Democrats. Their message of blaming former President George W. Bush is not resonating, and it shows.

Senate votes to screw over America’s future

Well, it’s official. By a 60-39 vote, the Democratic Majority passed healthcare “reform”. A vote won by certain Senators (see Nelson, Ben and Landrieu, Mary) being bought by the White House using taxpayer dollars. A vote that will FORCE all Americans to buy health insurance. A vote on a bill that the public does not know the full details of. A vote that has many planks that cannot be repealed (thanks to the most biased news network for informing us of that information).

I hope those that are in the age group of 18-35 are happy with their Obama vote. They are the ones that will be part of the many screwed in this.

Merry Christmas!

Columbus will be receiving a tax increase

Mayor Coleman during his State of the City Address

Mayor Coleman during his State of the City Address

Mayor Coleman may not have come out and said it, but it was definately implied in his State of the City address according to the Dispatch.

I wonder what are the costs that make the city budget potentially $50 million over budget?

I cannot, and I am sure that many Columbusites feel the same way, have my taxes increased. Now is not the time. If Mayor Coleman and City Council are the true “fiscal stewards” that they consider themselves, then they must find other ways to get money and trim this budget.
